E. Nesbit’s Five Children and It was broadcast for the first time in 1951. In this version, the Psammead was played by a small boy (Thomas Moore) who mimed to actor Richard Warner’s voice.
Forty years later, a 1991 remake of the story featured a sophisticated puppet Psammead made by the BBC’s Special Effects Department.
